Message from the CEO
The Wasmer Group was founded on the basic principal that our clients come first; we put your interests in front of ours. In so doing, we accept only those assignments that we are fully qualified to perform, we apply a professional approach, act with integrity and we maintain independence and objectivity, even if it means declining or withdrawing from an assignment.
We take a synergistic approach to all of our engagements. Even though the focus may be on developing professional services, organization structure, compensation or logistics, we look across the entire organization to integrate all functions. To this, we add the knowledge of the industry that has come from our substantial client base over the years.
Advising businesses at Wasmer expands beyond the theoretical. It is more than developing a hypothesis. We understand the practical side of business as well. All of our staff have held key positions in the industry prior to joining our firm. We have been owners, presidents, CFO's and controllers of VARs; we have run service and sales departments. The key ingredient that provides value to our clients is that we "have been there", so we understand what you are going through.
Although we have codified approaches to many common issues, e.g. productivity, utilization, business models, process diagnosis and design, we never assume that two companies have the same "problem". We seek to solve "your" specific problems. In so doing, we transfer skills, build your capabilities and instill a new and higher set of performance standards in your firm.
We expect our work to build familiarity, trust, commitment and genuine friendship, but all of these occur in the larger context or our professional values, i.e. putting your interests first, accepting only those assignments where we can have high impact, working in a professional manner, with integrity and maintaining our independence and objectivity.
